This work dates back, like the previous SUONO AMBIENTE (ANT03 - SOUND ENVIRONMENT) of the same series, to 1978.
A research project on a hypothesis of a "community rhythm" well described by Gillo Dorfles in his notes of the time: "The time-space-musical analysis performed by Albert Mayr in February 1978 in the tiny village of Brdo, in Istria, is the result of long meditations and deep practical experiments conducted by the young Tyrolean musician during the last years, and well illustrates a dimension - unusual in many aspects - of a aesthetic-anthropological approach."
The Mayr's survey describes the rhythms of small community not only in social function, but search and highlights its aesthetic traits.
